Review offers SEN-specific teaching tips for remote education

With two-thirds of SEN students having not engaged effectively with remote education, a research review has sought to offer practical ideas and tips for teaching staff.

Their report – Education in times of crisis: Effective approaches to distance learning – has looked at the most effective pedagogical approaches from across the world during the pandemic.
